    Superb starting pitching can carry a team to a World Series title, as the Chicago White Sox showed in 2005, when Jose Contreras, Mark Buehrle, Jon Garland and Freddy Garcia combined for a 9-1 record and a 2.84 earned-run average, four complete games and...

    Wild-card game gives Angels a running start on preparing for Royals
    Baseball's postseason blew in like a hurricane Tuesday night. No gentle sprinkles growing to a downpour. No breeze slowly turning to a gale. The Kansas City Royals won the American League wild-card game over the Oakland A's, 9-8, and it only took 12...

    Angels' Matt Shoemaker, Josh Hamilton good to go for playoffs

  • Things are going better for Angels this April

    Things are going better for Angels this April
    The cruelest month comes to an end Wednesday. The Angels are not buried. That counts as progress in Anaheim, where the home team has punted the season because of a poor April in each of the last two seasons. On the last day of the month, the Angels have...

    Angels put up all-around effort in 7-1 win over Indians

  • Hector Santiago's struggles weigh on Angels after loss to Rangers

    Hector Santiago's struggles weigh on Angels after loss to Rangers
    The Angels don't need Hector Santiago to anchor the rotation; that's the job of capable veterans Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson. They just can't afford for the left-hander to be an anchor in the rotation, a pitcher who weighs the staff down. But that's...
  • Chris Young, Mariners shut down Angels, 5-1

    Chris Young, Mariners shut down Angels, 5-1
    AT THE PLATE: Seattle right-hander Chris Young had a no-hitter until Kole Calhoun snapped a 0-for-14 slump with a one-out single in the sixth. Albert Pujols broke up the shutout with a solo homer to left-center in the seventh, his 14th of the season and...
  • Tyler Skaggs' effort in Angels' loss isn't pretty, but it's progress

    Tyler Skaggs' effort in Angels' loss isn't pretty, but it's progress
    Tyler Skaggs seemed to pitch two different games in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners, a seven-inning start that was a microcosm of a month in which the Angels' 22-year-old left-hander has alternated between brilliance and turbulence. Skaggs...

    Angels don't make the grade over A's in 9-5 loss
    The Angels and the American League West-leading Oakland Athletics opened a three-game series in the Oakland Coliseum on Friday night with 1 1/2 games separating the clubs. A big series? Perhaps. The A's are the two-time defending division champions, a...
  • Angels are no match for Athletics

    Angels are no match for Athletics
    No major league player would admit to an opponent being in his head, but with the way the Oakland Athletics dominated the Angels this weekend, you wonder if they may have set up temporary quarters in the minds of the Angels. With Sunday’s 6-3...

    Garrett Richards sharp in Angels' 3-0 win over Phillies
    Angels 3, Philadelphia Phillies 0 AT THE PLATE: Albert Pujols doubled to right in the first inning and scored on Raul Ibanez's single to right. Hank Conger and Grant Green singled in the second, and Efren Navarro hit a clutch two-out, run-scoring single...
